Afristar promotes the localization of SGR train drivers and transfer of driving skills
Despite the global health crisis, CRBC’s subsidiary Africa Star Railway Operation Company (Afristar), which operates the Kenya standard gauge railway, has been promoting the localization of SGR train drivers and transfer of driving skills. It has recently organized the promotion examination for Kenyan train drivers with Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC), attracting 26 assistant Kenyan train drivers to join. The exam involves three sections including theoretical knowledge, locomotive inspection and train driving. Up to now, Afristar has cultivated 175 Kenyan train drivers.
